“Can’t say just how much we loved our photos, you captured our day beautifully… Thank you so much, we are really happy!” – Athena & Max

Athena & Max chose Loch Lomond national park in the Trossachs of Scotland to host their intimate hand fasting elopement. Loch Lomond is such a special location for the couple, it is a place that they would often visit and had very special meaning to them. We met in the beautiful loch side town of Balmaha at the Oak Tree Inn (they do some amazing breakfasts!)


Balmaha and Loch Lomond Natural Beauty

Athena & Max chose The Brave Ones as their Scotland elopement photographer because they wanted images that reflected the rugged, raw and beauty of Scotland, something we understand very well indeed. It is a wonderful thing to be a Scotland wedding photographer as I get to see so much of the most beautiful views and being Loch Lomond wedding photographer is how I was able to be chosen for this amazing intimate elopement. Athena was 7 months pregnant at the time of the shoot and wore a bohemian out fit, which was just so amazing! same for Max, arriving together in their amazing camper van!


Loch Lomond Elopement Photographer

Claire the humanist was the celebrant for the day, a wonderful Scottish celebrant that knew the area well also being just an awesome person to be around! Check our her FAQ page here if you need advice on locations that she covers as well as some good advice on eloping to Scotland. I advised the location of where would be amazing for the elopement hand fasting ceremony to take place overlooking the beautiful Inchcailloch Island, the original location for the elopement to take place but severe flooding the week prior meant it was not possible.

We still found a fantastic place to hold the elopement and created some incredible, romantic and beautiful fine art elopement photography for the couple. After the shoot we headed back to the town of Balmaha and to a stunning tea and scone shop for some locally made scones with fresh cream and jam. A wonderful day to elope in Scotland!
